Strays is a light-hearted, story-driven, role-playing game where players take on the roles of talking animals, playing as dogs, cats, and other beloved pets.  Explore your neighborhood, defend it from scary critters, and go on exciting adventures, all inspired by the animated classics so many of us grew up with.  Make your own furry companion to dive headfirst into the ongoing struggles between Naughty and Nice, and take a stand for good kids everywhere!

Strays is family friendly and welcoming by design, and open to all manner of gamers, but particular the younger ones whose parents might want them having fun in less violent games and settings.  With a fast-moving system -- powered by Fate Accelerated Edition -- that's aimed at a "PG" level of content, and with it's nearly 100 pages filled with pictures inspired by fans' real-life pets, Strays is an accessible, easy to learn, game that's perfect for young gamers.

This ebook for Strays includes everything you need to get playing;  the core Fate Accelerated Edition rules, a brief description of the whimsical world of Strays, optional rules for "Tangles" and "Nice Points," and a handful of sample NPCs and archetypical characters to get you started.

This game looks so cute!! Would love to play as a stray Kitsune fox spirit who lost her samurai master and takes the form of a normal orange fox!

Hi all.

In an effort to address a few recent comments, I want to, firstly, apologize to any customers who aren't happy with their purchase of "Strays," or who in any way felt misled about the product they'd be receiving. Second, I'd like to explain that "Strays" was conceived of first and foremost as a Kickstarter attempt, a way to test the waters of layout, editing, art direction, printing, shipping, and all the assorted laundry list of tasks involved with crowd-funding. It was a test-bed of my ability to juggle those responsibilities, to learn new processes, and to utilize a family-friendly core mechanic in a way that could create a game aimed at kids, to help some buddies of mine get their little'uns into the hobby. I put it up here on DTRPG almost as an afterthought, because the feedback from my Kickstarter customers was so positive, and because -- as a PWYW product -- I felt it would just be a good way to get it out there to other people if they were interested.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
